SIMON WINCHESTER, KOROI HAWKINS, PALA MOLISA 

"Wouldn’t it be agreeable if the Pacific Ocean became a place for learning, co-operation and knowledge…” 

Inspired by this quotation from his latest book, Pacific: The Ocean of the Future, this session sees Simon Winchester on stage with RNZ International journalist Koroi Hawkins and academic Pala Molisa to discuss the environmental, legal, political and practical issues related to how we in Aotearoa currently respond to natural catastrophes around the Pacific Rim. RNZ National's Lynn Freeman chairs.
